The freshly painted coffee table - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday! 
I finally repainted my coffee table! I've been talking about it for years but after all the furniture I painted in the past I was dreading it! 

This time it was a breeze because I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!  Now I know why everyone raves about this paint! It is AMAZING!  I didn't have to strip or sand I just painted it and then used the Annie Sloan wax on top!  Now I want to repaint almost all my furniture!

Please excuse the wrinkled slipcovers on my sofa. I just changed them and it takes a few days for the wrinkles to release! And those dark spots on the table are just shadows. I distressed the table a little but not as much as I usually do.

Now that I had a freshly painted table I had to decorate it! I used my big silver tray and added some Spring items.

Those little terracotta pots are actually napkin rings.

I bought the etched cloche at Marshalls years ago.

The flowers are from the grocery store. I love the scent of stock but it is strong at times! this is why I had to repaint the coffee table. I'm really embarrassed to share this because it is so bad!  It was the first piece of furniture I ever painted.  That was over 15 years ago!  It was in really bad shape because I didn't strip it, I just sanded it and I thought that was good enough. Well it would have been if I would have known about Annie Sloan Chalk Paint back then!  It wasn't shabby chic it was just shabby as you can see! It looks so much fresher now! I'm so happy I finally repainted it!

Your table looks great. I have been using Annie Sloan over 2 years. Indoor and outdoor furniture. Varnish outside. Your cloche is the prettiest cloche I have seen on the Internet. We have a Marshall's and getting a Homegoods. I will be watching.
